Living History Programs
Through the park's Living History program, presented every summer from the first week in June through the first week of August, rangers and volunteers offer demonstrations and interpretive talks of Civil War life, activities, and professions. Visitors are invited to watch artillery and rifle firings performed using the drills taught to the soldiers and sailors of the era, and listen and participate in various ranger programs presented throughout the park along the 16-mile tour.
